The URL of a picture that is associated with the VariationSpecificValue
. A variation specific picture set can consist of up to 12 self-hosted or eBay Picture Services (EPS) hosted pictures. eBay Picture Services and self-hosted images can never be combined into the same variation specific picture set. To specify more than one image, use multiple PictureURL
fields, passing in a distinct URL in each of those fields. This field cannot have an empty/null value. The UploadSiteHostedPictures
call can be used to upload pictures to EPS. Note that if pictures are externally-hosted, they must be hosted on a site that is using the 'https' protocol.
The image specified in the first PictureURL
field is also used as the thumbnail image for applicable variations. For example, if the picture set contains pictures of red shirts (i.e., VariationSpecificName=Color and VariationSpecificValue=Red), the first picture is used as the thumbnail image for all the red shirt variations. Note: All images must comply with the Picture Requirements.
You can use Item.PictureDetails to specify additional pictures. For example, the item-level pictures could include a model wearing a black shirt, as a typical example of the shirt style. Note: If a URI contains spaces, replace them with
%20. For example,
http://example.com/my image.jpg must be submitted as
http://example.com/my%20image.jpg to replace the space in the image file name.
Variation pictures cannot be added or removed from a fixed-price listing when the listing is scheduled to end within 12 hours or if the item variation has already had transactions. Note: For some large merchants, there are no limitations on when variation pictures can be added or removed from a fixed-price listing, even when the item variation has had transactions or is set to end within 12 hours.
